Ohio CUs Bump the Banks campaign in second year
COLUMBUS, Ohio (10/14/11)--The Central Ohio Chapter of Credit Unions' Bump Your Bank campaign--in which consumers display a Bump Your Bank magnet on their vehicle for a chance at cash prizes--is in its second year. Anyone--including non-members--can pick up a free magnet at a participating credit union and register it at www.bumpyourbank.com. The magnet shows off how much the consumers value their local, community-oriented credit unions. And participants can register for a chance at weekly prizes or the grand prize of $1,000. Credit union spotters all over the Columbus look for the Bump Your Bank magnets. When they spot one, they enter the owner into the weekly random drawing. One person wins each week. Then, all spotted vehicles are entered automatically into the grand prize drawing. "Unlike for-profit banks, there are no wealthy investors sitting at the top waiting to make money off your investments," said Sandy Jessberger, a credit union member. "Instead, credit union profits are returned to members in the form of better loan rates, higher savings rates and lower fees," Jessberger added. Since this year's campaign launched in June, 18 people have won a weekly prize valued from $50 to $100. Weekly prizes will be awarded through the end of October, when the grand prize drawing will be conducted. Credit unions participating include:
* Central Ohio Community CU; * CME FCU; * CU of Ohio; * KEMBA Financial CU; * Marysville Goodyear Employees FCU; * Members First CU; * Ohio HealthCare FCU; * SMART FCU; * STE CU; * State Highway Patrol FCU; and * Total Assurance FCU
